lyrics

Now I lay me down to sleep
But Somnus never comes
I long for waters dark and deep
And I am skipping like a stone

My mind is playing tricks on me
And I can't get to sleep

I'm seeing things that can't be real
The phone's about to ring
Figures smiling in the black
Dismantling my sanity

My mind is playing tricks on me
And I can't get to sleep

Somnus come, take me to your room
Lay me down, snowy gown
The morning's coming soon

My lover rests, his rhythmic breath
Turns gently in his dreams
While I'm at war, quarter of four
As lonely as a soul can be
As lonely as a soul can be
While Somnus smiles mockingly

My mind is playing tricks on me
And I can barely sleep
My mind is playing tricks on me
And I can't get to sleep

Somnus come, take me to your room
